  • Residents receive a list of goals and objectives at the beginning of each rotation. At the end of the concentrated rotations, they meet with their preceptor to review their performance.  For longitudinal rotations, residents review their performance with their preceptor quarterly.  A report assessing residents is prepared based on ASHP’s Residency Program Design and Conduct. On a quarterly basis, the director of the residency program provides residents with an evaluation of their progress based on preceptors’ comments.

  • Residents are required to design, conduct, and evaluate a major project related to an aspect of pharmacy practice during the residency year.

  • Residents are required to deliver one ACPE-accredited continuing education presentation. They also must provide in-services to the pharmacy teams throughout the year depending on the rotation. In addition, residents present the results of their major project to the preceptors before presenting the results at a regional residency conference: the Eastern States Residency Conference.

  • Consistent with the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists Commission on Credentialing standards, the Hopkins residency experience is primarily a practical, rather than didactic or classroom experience.  Practice skills are developed throughout the program in all aspects of pharmaceutical care. Residents will staff in the pharmacy one shift during the week and every third weekend.
